The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) urges operators and owners of piston-engine aircraft to use an active warning carbon monoxide detector.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless and odourless gas, and its presence may not be detected until the physical symptoms and cognitive effects present themselves
CO detectors with an active warning are inexpensive and widely available, and they provide pilots with the best opportunity to detect CO exposure before it adversely affects their ability to control the aircraft, or they become incapacitated.
